Volunteer efforts make the BCCLA’s work possible, and here are 4 ways you can get involved in protecting and promoting civil liberties in Canada. We ask that all potential volunteers become members of the BCCLA, and you can sign up as a member here.
1. Casework Volunteer
The BCCLA is looking for a casework volunteer to begin in September 2013.
This volunteer would work closely with BCCLA Caseworker Alyssa Stryker, in corresponding with members of the public on civil liberties violations. This application is open until May 5, 2013

2. Legal Internships
We offer internships for law students. Interns work in all of our program areas and engage in public policy advocacy by assisting us in litigation, public education, research and media. This year, we will be hosting two to three student fellows to work full-time (40 hours a week) on cutting-edge legal issues, including advocating for greater police accountability, protecting privacy rights, and national security issues. We are now accepting applications for internships for summer 2013.
Internship – Summer (Please note that intern positions for summer 2013 have been filled)
Internship – Fall and Winter
The BCCLA has an opportunity for students interested in gaining experience through an internship in the fall and winter of 2012/2013. Contact BCCLA Counsel Raji Mangat at email@example.com for more information.
Articled Students - We do not have positions for articled students at this time.
3. Pro bono Legal Services
Across Canada, lawyers provide pro bono services, representing the Association in various courts. Without these services, a great deal of what has been accomplished by the BCCLA would never have happened. If you are interested in providing pro bono services, please fill out this form.
